Hi I'm Daniel

I am a husband and a father of 5 sons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

With five sons and a great wife I have been richly blessed. I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

For me the choice to be a Mormon took time. I was basically raised in the church starting from age 4. My parents taught me and my siblings about the church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We attended church weekly as well as all of the other activities provided by the church. I read the Bible, Book of Mormon and other scriptures many times though out my teen years, but I never got down on my knees to confirm the truthfulness of the restored Gospel. It wasn't until I was an adult that life's choices had placed me in a position where I could be humble enough to ask. In my parents quiet home (while they were out of town) I knew that I needed to actually pray. At the base of the stairs I poured out my heart to my Heavenly Father and felt the comforting love from him through the Holy Ghost. That day was the start of a new direction for me. I have come to know that Christ's Atonement is for everyone and that our Father in Heaven desires his children to return to him. I know that by following the Savior and his living prophets I have been blessed. My parents provided the resources to build a foundation, but it wasn't set in place until I did my part which was to ask. Once I asked and received my answer then I needed to go and do and become the person our Heavenly Father expected me to be. Great blessing have come as I have more diligently followed the Savior.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve in the church. I have enjoyed teaching children and youth as well as adults. I have been able to perform service for individuals, families and my community: roofing a house, harvesting vegetables and painting homes. I enjoy working and helping someone by lightening their load.
